It’s All Hallway! An Unconference Approach to Professional Development

Are you heading to Philly for next month’s SLA 2011 conference? Check out this program on unconferences.

It’s All Hallway! An Unconference Approach to Professional Development
Monday, June 13 @ 10-11:30am

Speakers: Lisa Chow, Karen Huffman and Mary Talley

Unconferences are participant-driven events that provide an informal and open environment for learning and sharing of ideas, resources, and best practices. This unmoderated panel will feature case studies and best practices of two unconferences: HealthCampNYC, a regional health unconference focused on health literacy and community health and SLA’s unconference sessions.

At the end of this session, attendees will:

  • understand what an unconference is
  • learn about past unconferences
  • be able to develop and facilitate their own unconference at their organization
